Another Devastator

Bill Koppos has already done an excellent review of the kit on this site, to which I have little to add. I totally agreed with all his points about the strengths and weaknesses of what I thought was essentially a very good kit. The only [...]

Dual Build 1/72 Hobbyboss & Eduard Mig-15's.....

Here is a a build of both kits. The Eduard is by far the definitive Mig-15 in almost any scale...Perhaps my HpH Mig-15 may rival it for detail but that is 1/32 scale!. The Hobbyboss kit is surprisingly detailed for an inexpensive kit . [...]

Fokker D. II, 1:32, Special Hobby, Lt. Fritz Grünzweig, Jasta 16. My first ever model built in 1:32. I didn't choose the simplest model to begin with. I made a few mistakes there and also dropped my model on the floor before finishing it [...]

Mustang I, 1/72 Italeri, RCAF 414 Squadron, F/O Hollis Hills

Hollis Hills was an American flying with the Royal Canadian Air Force, and this aircraft, with Hollis at the stick, was the first Mustang to score a victory, over an FW-190, above the beaches of the disastrous Dieppe raid, a dark day for [...]
